CDL License restriction

News from Interstate Truck Driving School - Back to News Page

CDL License restriction

In 2011, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration called for a restriction on CDL licenses for drivers using a Commercial Vehicle for a CDL road test when equipped with an automatic transmission. The state of Minnesota adapted that change as of May 4th, 2015. Now when a driver takes a CDL road test in a Commercial Vehicle that has an automatic transmission, the driver is restricted when driving commercial vehciles to only those CMVs with an automatic transmission.  The CDL restriction does not effect a driver's ability to drive a non CMV with a manual transmission.
